Students work with me in order to bring calm and organization to their college admissions experience. Some of my clients use my services simply to create a strong, personalized list of “good-fit” colleges, while others use my support through the entire process, including assistance with their essay and application. Clients work with me in their pursuit of a traditional college environment, to an alternative academic experience, to colleges that offer a specialization, from STEM majors to BFA degrees in the performing or visual arts.
Here are recent reviews from some of my clients:
“Alice was an invaluable resource to our daughter especially during her junior year. Leah walked away from her meetings with Alice inspired and excited to explore schools and her future. She started junior year overwhelmed by the options but, as a result of Alice’s engaging style, attentiveness, encouragement, and knowledge, we watched Leah confidently start to take on much of the process independently (well, we supplied the driving!). She would circle back to Alice after our campus visits eager to share what she learned. Alice provided us with thorough follow-up emails after each meeting. This continued throughout her junior year and by early in her senior year she had identified a clear top choice, applied Early Decision, and was accepted. As I watch other parents juggle visiting schools on top of their child’s busy senior schedule, I am grateful to have had Alice on our side early guiding Leah through the process. We are all now enjoying the rest of her senior year!“

“We hired Alice to help our daughter navigate the college application process, and are so glad we did. Alice has helped our daughter think about what she wants and how she is going to get there. Alice has transformed what for many is a very stressful, anxious time, to one of promise and optimism. From helping choose a high school course of study, relaying summer work and study opportunities, recommending a tutor, helping develop a standardized test schedule, developing a list of schools to apply to, and navigating the financial aid applications and editing application essays, Alice has a been with us every step of the way and all for a reasonable cost. We feel very grateful for her counsel and guidance.”

Alice has a wealth of knowledge about a multitude of schools across the country and understood what our daughter was hoping for in her college education. Alice’s help turned the college application process from wading through a swamp of information to swimming through the waters of knowledge–she had the answers to the endless questions that crop up when applying to college, and a buoyant spirit to boot! ”

Alice was an amazing support for my son. She helped him stay organized and on track every step of the way during his college search. Alice knew a lot about all the colleges he was interested in, and had wonderful ideas on how he could present himself in his most authentic way. We were so thankful to have her guidance and advice.

Alice has been a true blessing to me and to my son. She really got to know him personally and what he wanted in a college. She helped him do all the applications. She even found a wonderful school that we didn’t know about that would be the excellent fit for him. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient and very responsive to any questions that we have had.
I highly recommend using Alice for helping with all your college searches and questions.
